LAKE PLACID — Dr. John Cerruti has teamed up with The Structural Management Program, a national organization designed to raise the awareness of biostructural integrity.
For the past 20 years, Cerruti has provided chiropractic care to families throughout the Tri-Lakes area. He has also had the opportunity to work with amateur, Olympic and professional athletes.
The Structural Management Program looks at each patient biomechanically, or architecturally. Most musculoskeletal pains and degenerations are due to imbalance, fixations and distortion patterns that have been ignored over a long period.
Also, the Concerned Parents of Young Athletes (CPOYA) program, an offshoot of The Structural Management Program, looks to raise the awareness of sports biomechanics in middle- and high-school students.
Although musculosketal breakdown and degeneration is the leading cause of disability over the age of 50 in the U.S., many professionals are not planning ahead for young athletes.
The Structural Management Program and CPOYA are the most advanced sports biomechanics programs available. Most sports injuries are due, at least in part, to structural imbalances that can be addressed prior to injury. The hallmark of these programs is the Structural Fingerprint exam, which detects biomechanical irregularities, followed by the Advanced Conditioning Program.
Cerruti can be reached in Lake Placid at 523-7173, Tupper Lake at 359-8055 and on the web at www.structrualmanagement.com or www.cpoya.com.
